ABOUT THE ARTISANS
Born of a desire to reduce India’s mountain of waste and help some of Delhi’s poorest communities, this recycling project started as something to do with the thousands of plastic bags that could not be composted. Once these hardworking women started creating handmade goods out of recycled plastic, their popularity skyrocketed and they were able to support their families and communities.
